    This book is great very informative and spot on for my 5 year old grandson who is obsessed with circuses and the set up of them Big hit as a present

    Intricately illustrated I used this story as part of the International Primary Curriculum to teach how circuses travel and what goes on behind the scenes to Children aged 5 6.

    CircusA beautifully illustrated book with enormous detail about circus life throughout the year Because I needed it to read to a group of children, the tone of the colours is too light for them to see the detail However, it is a lovely book for individuals or pairs to explore.

    Once again, another delightful book by Peter Spiers, I never seem to get enough of his drawings and paintings My wish is that I could paint and draw as he does The book arrived on time and in excellent condition.

    The kids had heard of the circus but were amazed to know that the circus used to travel by railway and huge trucks into the cities, and also into rural areas Then they would parade down main streets large or smaller with the clowns and an elephant and horses, and a band to pull the crowd in We did discuss issues of cruelty to the animals and other reasons that these circuses eventually disappeared This book shows all the old ways, the tents, and cages, tightropes, clowns, horses, big cats, everything

    I bought this book for my six year old but it s not a good book to read aloud Many small pictures on each page It is better for older children to read on their own.

    We took our grandchildren to the circus I purchased this book as a follow up from the outing It is perfect to reinforce what we saw at the circus and a nice reminder of the memories we made there The illustrations were very appealing and I was impressed with the content.I bought six different books an this is by far the best Very informative GOOD PURCHASE

    The pictures are so fun But the storyit s not a narrative, just a description of the circus Most of it is facts, people s names and countries or origin Not a good read for my 4yo, but she loves looking at the illustrations.

    Peter Spier is one of my favorites I love his books The illustrations are so detailed You could look at every page 20 times over And see something new every single time It takes any reader old or young to the circus This book is one of his best in my opinion.
